Hi! Sorry u r going thru this. I went thru it too. I worried for 3 months of a brain tumor because I was having daily headaches and other symptoms. I begged my neuro for a MRI and it was all clean!!!!
Good luck I know exactly how u feel. I wasted 2 years of my life worrying about HIV. It was awful. I found the courage to get tested and it was negative.
Please keep us posted and I am so glad u had the courage to finally get the test done!!!

They can't tell u. When I got my MRI done the tech didn't give any hint either way and was very cold. I asked her and she said the doctor will let me know the results gggrrrr my MRI was clean!!

Nope! The tech DEFINITELY wouldn't tell you if it was normal. Try not to read too much into things. I know it's hard - I've been there - waiting for results from a brain MRI. It isn't easy. Call your doctor on Friday and ask for the results so you can have a peaceful weekend! It's always a good thing if YOU have to call THEM for results :-)

Aww, I know this was hard for you.  The tech isn't allowed to tell you anything because they aren't trained to accurately read/interpret scan results.  However, I have also heard that if something extremely sinister was found, you would have either heard from someone immediately, or not been allowed to leave the facility. 

I'm guessing too that everything is fine, and your symptoms are more a result of stress/anxiety rather than a brain disease :)

I, too, have brain tumor fears--but am slowly working through them and realizing that my symptoms can all be attributed to much more common (benign) things.

Good to hear your MRI was clean!  =)  Now that should help ease your fears.  Lately I have been going through a lot and asked for an MRI to see if I have MS but the doctor said no as he said it'd be wasting my money.  So right now I am trying to put faith in him after being diagnosed with carpel tunnel, that turned out not to be carpel tunnel, and then having a doctor tell me it could be ALS, MS, cancer, carpel tunnel, RA, etc.  Now I am anxious and not sure whether to trust my last doctor I saw who said its only anxiety and I need to see a counselor and get acupuncture/massage therapy.   You are definitely not alone, and if you ever need to talk or anything I am always all ears! = )

Seeing how everyone's MRI's are normal when they have more crazier symtoms than me, makes me feel better. I'm very glad you got your answer.  :bigsmile:

I had no doubt in my mind.   

Now on to address the disorder you have.

good luck and be well

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

I read this earlier & wanted to come back to comment. I don't even know you, but I'm proud of you for facing your fears & going through with the MRI. It took guts for you not to back down & to just go through with it & I think that's amazing! You should be proud of yourself! Now don't waste any more time -- live your life! (I'm trying to do the same...)  :yes: :yes:
